The Kano state police command has arrested a man for allegedly taking his teenage daughter to three traditional barbers, who mutilated her genital organs.

The suspect, Ibrahim Magaji, a resident of Sabuwar Kaura village of Doguwa local government area, was arrested alongside the three traditional barbers, Shu’aibu Wanzam, Muhammadu Garba and Aminu Ali, for “forcefully mutilating the victim”.

In a statement, the spokesman to the command, Magaji Majia, said the key suspect “conspired and gave out his biological daughter”, one Kaltume Ibrahim, to the barbers “who forcefully held her and used sharp object to mutilate her private part thereby causing severe grievous injury against her”.

“This operation was cruelly carried out thereby, causing grievous injury to the genital organ of the victim, rendering it dysfunctional over the years,” said Mr. Majia, a deputy superintendent of police.

He added that “all the suspects are arrested and undergoing interrogation for the offence of criminal conspiracy and causing grievous hurt and will soon be arraign (sic) in Court of Law for prosecution”.
